Inside Housing survey assaults to housing workers
Have you been physically or verbally assaulted during your work as a housing professional?
Inside Housing has launched a questionnaire for housing staff – it can be completed here.
Inside Housing (pay wall) writes: “We want to find out what types of attacks housing professionals face while doing their jobs, and whether they report all incidents to their employer.
All responses will be treated in the strictest confidence.
The details provided will feed in to a wider investigation into the violence faced by those working in the housing sector.
Inside Housing has used the Freedom of Information Act to ask local authorities across the UK how many assaults against housing staff have been reported to them since the beginning of 2009.
We have also contacted the 180 largest housing associations requesting the same figures.
Housing professionals have until Friday 20 May to complete the online questionnaire and to share their experiences and opinions.”
